"Never be tired of learning or teaching others." Confucius
Upon stumbling across an article about fifteen-year-old Boitshepo, it became clear that even the Department of Basic Education (DBE) in South Africa is thinking about including languages such as Mandarin as part of school curriculum. The reason why Mandarin is considered an important language in our country is because of the growing political ties between South Africa and Beijing.
There are also many South African teachers accepting teaching posts in China. If you are a teacher wishing to spread the language of English in China, it is equally important for you to be able to speak Chinese too. Being South African, the thought of learning to speak Chinese can be overwhelming. For one writing in Chinese is not anything like writing in English, IsiZulu, or IsiXhosa. Having said that, determination plays a role in how you can go from being clueless about Chinese to fluent in Chinese. Taking private tutorials in the language is another way in which you can learn to speak the language in no time.
Having a private tutor helps because a private tutor will structure Chinese tutorials according to your desired language learning style. When it comes to the dedication needed to master Chinese, a private tutor can ensure that you remain dedicated throughout your language learning journey. A private tutor will also work at your learning pace and even structure language lesson to match your learning needs.
It was Nelson Mandela who stated how respectful it is to greet a man in his mother tongue. Imagine interacting with a Chinese student online or in-person to teach him or her English and showing him or her how well you can speak in his or her mother tongue language as well. When teaching someone, respect is not just gained but earned, and this surely is a way to gain respect.
However, with Chinese being worlds apart from South Africa's official languages, it can be a mission to get started. Getting started, however, is easier than you may think. Get motivated to learn the language by thinking of how much you will benefit in your career and personal life just by learning the language. Keeping this thought in mind, Chinese lessons are your way of obtaining a successful career in the future. Being able to list Chinese as a language that you are proficient in on your CV will also be desirable to all your future employees.
Zhùhé (Congratulations), worldwide success can be obtained by learning Chinese.

The culture of the people of a country is intertwined with the language they speak.
